Eggless Whole Wheat Carrot Muffins/ Cup Cakes

I was very keen on trying out some eggless muffins. Also, I wanted the muffins to be made of whole wheat, include a vegetable, no nuts and not too sweet. Finally after looking around on the net, I came across this and this, but modified them to suit my requirements. I made a small quanity, so this recipe makes about 7 medium sized muffins.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp butter
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnammon powder
1 pinch nutmeg powder
1 pinch cardamom powder
1 pinch salt

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and all the spices.
Cream butter and sugar. Add the flour mixture, carrot and milk and mix well.

Line a muffin pan with paper muffin cups. If you don't have them, you could grease the pan. Pour the batter into the cups so that they are 2/3rds full. 

Bake at 350F for 25 minutes (or until fork inserted comes out clean). And enjoy the healthy muffins.
